It'd be anyone with enough money to order it, which would be well in their interest as someone with an intricate armor would be assumed to be rich, which means he'd be much more likely to be ransomed on the battlefield rather than straight up slayed. There's a lot of customized armors that are however just ceremonial, in that case the focus is entirely on it looking good
On the other hand you've got the Landsknechts, usually low-born mercenaries who all had customized costumes in part because it made each of them more recognizable during a battle, but also because the german emperor Maximilian granted them the privilege of looking as good as they wanted as the lives they had were "short and brutish"

I'll post some precolumbian mesoamerican (not all of them are aztec but I'll use "aztec" for short) warriors, pics are taken from Osprey's Men-at-Arms books
You'll notice in all of these pictures a great abundance of feathers, which aztecs loved as much as they loved flowers, and a complete absence of iron, as aztecs never discovered how to melt it, since it requires a much higher temperature than other metals. The black parts on the weapons are very sharp obsidian (volcanic glass), the green parts on the cotton costumes are quetzal feathers

The goal of warfare was either to add more cities to the empire or to capture prisoners (especially during the religious Flower Wars), and a warrior rose in ranks as he captured more and more opponents. Once he captured 4, he became a jaguar warrior

No. 242619

The goggly mask this priest wears represents the Mixtec rain god Dzahui, which is about the same as the Aztec rain god Tlaloc. The goggles are so significant as a religious symbol that even in the 50s the anthropologist Levi-Strauss was able to use lensless glasses as a trading commodity with amazonian tribes
The warlord is holding an atlatl and darts. Contrary to popular belief the Aztecs weren't in fact defenseless at long distances, and their defeat against conquistadores were caused mostly by opposing superior forces (sacrificing and enslaving the neighboring tribes made them a LOT of enemies) and the same western diseases outbreaks that decimated the tribes of North America
Aztec heraldry was very developed, but used neither painted shields nor western-style flag. The standard bearer is wielding the symbol of the city of Tilantongo

This priest is wearing human skin, a byproduct of intense flaying activity during human sacrifices (after cutting the heart out, they weren't monsters). I remember a story of a princess that got married to a noble of another city state to create an alliance, said princess ended up being sacrificed and a priest wore her flayed skin in front of her father, all this done in fact to honor her (her city didn't have the same interpretation of the events so they went to war). Sacrifices were honored while they were alive, their remains were venerated as relics and they were said to go directly to one of the greatest heavens, same as the braves who died in combat and the women in childbirth. If that part about women in childbirth sounds familiar, yes, that's how the spartans thought too, and they also had regular "artificial" wars like the Flower Wars (they just killed defenseless helots though). I guess war-based societies end up following the same lines of thought

Sacrifices that showed fear of death were shouted at and admonished

Medieval knights are cool and 12-13th century armor is the best looking IMHO. Aesthetically speaking, I loose interest at late 13th and after armors.
Modern moids would never dress this fashionably.
BTW, the artist you posted is Graham Turner and he makes really great art. I gonna spam a few of my fav pieces.

I don't think having head concussions or broken bones would be considered fun but at least you get to die in fashion kek.

>Sikelgaita (also Sichelgaita or Sigelgaita) (1040 – 16 April 1090) was a Lombard princess, the daughter of Prince Guaimar IV of Salerno and second wife of Duke Robert Guiscard of Apulia. She commanded troops in her own right.[1] Robert Guiscard wrote that she stood six feet tall
>in 1081 she was on the field in full armour, rallying her and Robert's troops when they were initially repulsed by the Byzantine army and were in danger of losing cohesion. According to the Byzantine historian Anna Comnena, she was "like another Pallas, if not a second Athena,"
>"in her we come face to face with the closest approximation in history to a Valkyrie. A woman of immense build and herculean physical strength, she hardly ever left her husband's side – least of all in battle, one of her favourite occupations. At such moments, charging magnificently into the fray, her long blond hair streaming out from beneath her helmet, deafening friend and foe alike with huge shouts of encouragement or imprecation, she must have looked – even if she did not altogether sound – worthy to take her place among the daughters of Wotan."

>Born in Dinan into a soldier family, Duchemin married a soldier named Brûlon and served from 1792 to 1799 in the defence of Corsica. She initially fought disguised as a man along with her husband, but was eventually discovered to be a woman. Despite this, she had shown such valour in battle that she was allowed to remain in service. She survived her husband and was proficient with sword and dagger in hand-to-hand combat. In 1797, she asked to be allowed into Les Invalides after she received severe wounds in the siege of Calvi, but was denied seven years. When she received the pension in 1804, she was also promoted to the rank of lieutenant.
